    Semi-Relevant Video:


    The Worst Shot In the NBA:

    The Indiana Pacers are currently percentage points ahead of the Sixers
    in the standings. That margin means everything once the playoffs start.
    Even if the Sixers win the Atlantic and are guaranteed no worse than
    the #4 seed, they could still be a road team in the first round of the
    playoffs if the #5 seed has a better record. A win tonight would give
    the Sixers a one-game lead on Indy and a 2-0 advantage in their head
    -to-head games (with 2 left to play at the end of the season). Must win.

    The Pacers started the season hot, but have come back down to Earth
    recently. Their record has been kept afloat by feasting on the weak
    teams, but they've lost 9 straight games to teams with winning records.
    Sounds a bit familiar, unfortunately. Tonight, the Sixers have a chance
    to put another notch on their wins vs. winning teams belt. They have a
    chance to send a message to a team they might face in the first round
    of the playoffs, and perhaps most importantly, they have the chance
    to test out their shiny new starting lineup against one of the better
    defensive teams in the league.

    The perimeter matchups should be great in this one. Jrue goes head
    -to-head with the guy who pushed him off the ball in his only season
    at UCLA, Darren Collison. Evan Turner faces a rangy, long defensive
    wing in Paul George, and a guy who he's going to have to stick to like
    glue on the perimeter on the defensive end. And Andre Iguodala gets
    to lock down the guy who carried his bags for Team USA two summers
    ago, Danny Granger. Those matchups, alone, are worth the price of
    admission.

    The interesting matchups don't stop on the perimeter, though. Elton
    Brand vs. David West is a much closer contest than you might think.
    In fact, the edge probably goes to Brand, who can actually spell
    defense. Neither guy has been an efficient scorer. At the five, though,
    Roy Hibbert has a clear advantage. Thankfully, he's grossly underused
    by the Pacers...CONTINUE READING DEPRESSED FAN
    This is the darkest timeline.

    It has been a while since the Pacers played on national TV. I can't remember, are we going to get the national telecast or will be a blackout?

    Mac lost a lot of weight in those clips.

    Also, DC's best moment of last year in that recap.

    Didn't even realize this one would be on ESPN. Guess no replay to watch after work.

    In reality, a must win is only ever a elimination game, but this sure seems like a must win.

    Anyway you look at it this is a huge game for us.

    The cream always rises to the top, and we're about to show the 76ers the white hot cream of an elite basketball team.

    20 bucks says Dwight/Deron get traded 5 minutes in and ESPN cuts away to the studio for the entire game to talk about it.

    That tends to be what happens with Nationally televised games. No one else gets any rights to them.

    If you watch the show in reverse, it's about some young adults slowly getting their lives together and deciding that opening up a bar isn't right for them. Also Dennis resolves his issues with psychopathy.
